7 Exploitation movie sub-genres you probably won’t see again

There were always subgenres in movies, and the more cinema got developed, the more subgenres were born.

Some of them were very short-lived, and in today’s cinema they’re pretty much non-existent.

Why some of them are not popular anymore? Answer is – various reasons, some were invented for a short period of time, others were cultural, and since the time goes by fast, it all changes. Some stay, some leave.

Below is an interesting list of film subgenres that can be considered extinct today (this I believe is a good reason to track them down, and watch them again!).

However, sometimes (maybe once a year or so), someone makes a film that fits into these subgenres, maybe just to remind viewer about the “good old times”.

Okay, enough with the introductions, as below are listed the movie subgenres, that will probably never rise from the ashes.

* Women in prison films (Women in Cages, The Big Bird Cage, Barb Wire Dolls)

* Cannibal films (Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, The Man from Deep River)

* Spaghetti Westerns (Fistful of Dollars, The Good, the bad, and the Ugly)

* Nazisploitation Films (She Wolf of the SS, SS Hell Camp)

* Cautionary Films (Reefer Madness, Sex Madness, Mom and Dad).

* Horror-Porn (Erotic Nights of the Living Dead, Porno Holocaust)

* Brucexploitation (Clones of Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee versus Supermen, Bruce Lee in New Quinea, Bruce Lee fights back from the Grave).
